Annabelle – Creation: Blu-ray Review











Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the title I reviewed. The opinions I share are my own.”

The Movie:

Several years after the tragic death of their young daughter, a doll maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shut-down orphanage into their home. They soon become the target of the doll maker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

I love the fact that The Conjuring is creating these spin off films. The first Annabelle film was very enjoyable and creepy but I did feel like it missed a number of points to make it a perfect film so obviously going into this sequel I had high hopes that it would alleviate my concerns. The film felt like it took a bit to get going. I understand that time is needed to introduce setting and characters and such but I think the intro could’ve been condensed a bit to get to the good stuff sooner. Other than that, as soon as the movie got rolling it was great and far superior than the first film. There were a decent number of jump scares (not too many) and the creep factor was pretty high so already it was a win for me. There was also a nicely placed nod to the future of The Conjuring Universe which I thought was a smart move. Throughout the film I kept wondering how everything was going to tie together with the first Annabelle movie and I can honestly say that I thought they did it impressively. Now the only thing that is needed is a sequel where we see The Warrens go up against Annabelle and have it lead into the original Conjuring film. Until then I highly suggest checking this sequel out as soon as you can. It’s better than the first one and that’s pretty rare to see. 8/10
